Equestrian fans came out in force last week at the Cayman Islands Equestrian Centre in George Town for the Caribbean Equestrian Association Junior Jumping Competition.
Cayman competed against Jamaica, Bermuda and Barbados. Cayman won the event with local riders Ashley Scaletta, the 14 & Under representative, and Jamie-Lauren McTaggart, the 16 & Under rider, both rewarded with the top rider award in their divisions.
Jamaica, Barbados and Bermuda all performed well and everyone had a safe journey over the jumps.
Co-organiser Jane van der Bol, Scaletta’s mother, said: ‘The weather stayed clear all day a little cooler than normal and we had a fabulous turn out. A great day in all.
‘There was another Dogs Horsing Around dog show. It was a great event as well with some great entries and lots of wonderful prizes.’
